Sonic Frontiers gets domain name ahead of Game Awards
All signs point to the next step in the Sonic series revealed at The Game Awards.
Sonic turned 30 this year, and Sega celebrated that milestone in a number of different ways. A Sonic Central feed in May this year featured a slew of announcements related to Sonic’s birthday. A remaster of Sonic Colors, launching in September, a new collection of classic Sonic games called Sonic Origins coming in 2022, and a number of cameos for the Hedgehog, including visits to Super Monkey Ball and Two Point Hospital.
The Sonic stream ended with a mysterious first glimpse of a brand new Sonic game. So mysterious that he didn’t even reveal a name, just Sonic circling a symbol and that was it. The new game will be here in 2022, but Sega hasn’t given anything more about how it will play or look like. All signs point to that changing later this week at the Game Awards.
Sonic fans browsing the web for clues that might point to what the game will look like discovered two things over the weekend. The most telling breadcrumb trail of all is the recording of a Sonic Frontiers domain name. Fans believed the new game would be called Sonic Rangers, but a trademark by Sega last month revealed that the most likely name choice would be Sonic Frontiers.
Domain registration isn’t the only clue to a Sonic Frontiers Game Awards reveal. JamKingVAC shared on Reddit that they noticed the Sonic Steam pagethe number of games has increased from 34 to 35. While that may be the addition of Origins, when paired with the building blocks set up for a Frontiers site, it seems more likely that the brand new game will be one that will be more coverage this Thursday.
Game Awards host Geoff Keighley has previously promised the show’s revelations will be in double digits, so at least one Sonic show seems likely. There just might be a trailer for Frontiers as well as more information, including a potential release date, on Origins. These two games coupled with Sonic the Hedgehog 2’s arrival in theaters mean 2022 could be an even bigger year for Sonic fans than 2021.
